On December 11, Civic San Diego will hold a second convening to launch an innovative project to create a broad-based collaborative network of stakeholders to inform the development of our Community Benefits goals.    Our objectives are ambitious and essential -  to cultivate diverse civic participation, to engage in consequential dialogue, to explore theory and practical strategies, and to act on opportunities to build consensus that reflects our shared values.  
This convening will feature the panel discussion "Creating Complete Communities" and our first consensus-building exercise.  
We invite you to join us!

The Urban Land Institute San Diego-Tijuana District Council (ULI) is leading expert discussions of an integrated approach to planning and creating stronger, healthier, more satisfying communities for San Diegans of all ages, abilities, ethnicities and income levels.
The “Complete Community,” as described by ULI, is one that incorporates elements that contribute to the quality and character of the places where people live, work, move and thrive.   Elements that serve to create complete communities are most often beneficial to multiple neighborhoods.  Even so, it follows that some elements are uniquely suited to the conditions, needs and goals of specific neighborhoods; and that certain elements are key to economic growth in underinvested neighborhoods. 
Civic San Diego’s view is that completing neighborhoods will require the collaborative participation of multiple stakeholders (residents, property owners, planners, developers, engineers, environmentalists, business and philanthropic interests, social service providers, policymakers, government agencies, and others) to provide both professional expertise and community context; and to leverage the interconnectivity of a host of local solutions. 
The extent to which Civic San Diego’s community benefit goals can, or should be an element of a "complete community" strategy, is an important area of deeper inquiry.   Please join us on December 11 for a great program and discussion!
